Today's SALT challenge

SALT is a challenge blog I discovered a while back and have been following, though I haven never actually participated in a challenge. This is what part of their About Us section says: "We are a diverse group of card makers, scrappers and altered art fans from across the world who have been brought together through our love of Jesus Christ and our desire to express our faith in creative ways." They post a challenge every two weeks.

Todays challenge post is titled "He knows us inside and out" and is based on Psalm 139. This happens to be one of my favorite scripture pages and I have used it as inspiration for a couple of layouts in the past, so I decided to repost them.



The above layout is a digital that I created created March 22, 2007 and was inspired by the March Scripture Challenge at Digitals. I used a Heart charm provided by Lifesong Kreations and fiber and paper by Arvita. It is to remind my beautiful daughter that no matter where she goes or who she meets nobody will know her better or love her more than God.




The layout above was completed October 18, 2006 for a journaling challenge at Scrapternity. It is only the 4th layout I'd ever done and I didn't have any fancy supplies. I used just plain cardstock and computer paper. I printed the title and Psalm 139:13-17 with my computer and cut it out and stuck it on the layout. The picture is a photocopy of one of my ultrasounds. In this particular untrasound you can very clearly see the baby's face. My husband and I both journaled our thoughts on computer paper and I backed it with some black paper I found around the house somewhere. My husband's journaling reads "The first time I saw your face in the ultrasound I was amazed at the miracle of life, knowing there was a living human being living inside. I thought of how blessed we are to be having another baby to love and bring joy to our lives." Mine says "I remember the day so well. Your dad and your sibling were all there to have their first look at the little miracle that was you. I couldn't believe how clearly we saw you. You even moved your little hand like you were waving and covered your face like you were playing peek-a-book. We fell in love with you that day and the love just keeps growing." I knew nothing about inking or any of the other cool techniques at that time. Maybe some day I'll redo it but I still love it just as it is.
